As I pointed out, the last quarter of the game after The Sanctuary of Rock and Lava does feel like they ran out of time and had to cut a lot of stuff. The Tomb of the Ancients is great, but Beneath the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava, the Iron Mountains/Gloomy Island and Prison Ship feel very lackluster compared to it.
Interestingly enough, I feel the same way about the whole Echoing Caves/Precipice/Top of the World segment.

It's clearly not in the original version.

The only other place I remember them in other versions is the Woods of Light, Globox Village, Tomb of the Ancients secret, and the Iron Mountains, but you can't really do anything like that in those areas anyway.
GLOBOX MOMENT!

An interesting little detail I noticed in the PS2 version, in The Sanctuary of Stone and Fire, the Mini Jano makes a creepy laugh/snarl when it approaches Rayman when he turns his back to it in that version, unlike in the other versions.

Tbh I never succeeded in being frightened or even on edge during that fight – until I played in first-person mode, that is!

Yeah, that is one of the fights the first person mod makes a lot more tense. You can't see it coming out or how close it is to you when you turn your back in first person, so you have to rely on your ears to determine when to turn around and attack.

The strange thing about this conversation is that I'm pretty sure a few minutes before I got up and read that post, I had a dream that involved me telling someone "Look, I'm not afraid of Jano, okay?"
(Followed by my game glitching and me going Win+Shift+Q (i3 equivalent of Alt+F4) to avoid anything scary happening in the glitched state)

You might remember that in Report N° 20Z from the old Rayman 2 website, Ly was said to dress like the People of Prhys.

However, I recently noticed that in the French version, it is "peuple des Prhys", which could mean "Phrys people" or possibly "people of the Phrys" (Phrys being plural here). The difference is interesting, as the English version kinda implies that Prhys is a place, while the French one makes it sounds like Prhys is the name of the people in question (or possibly a plural location, like "the Lakes").

Not a very useful peace of information, but still food for thought. :hap:
